This weekend I have been in Auckland surrounded by One Direction fans. It has been a cultural revelation watching these “Tweens” in hotel lobbies and cafes, eating pizza and sipping cokes while their Mum looks harassed and they fill in the final details on their Harry Styles poster.

A girl I chatted to was staying at the band’s hotel and reported a sea of tearful, emotional girls losing control at a mere wave from one of the band (not Harry – and let’s face it who over the age of 13 knows the other members names?). It has been awe inspiring.

In honour of the mums and dads dutifully accompanying their children I give you this link. It will provide a wry smile for anyone who has been down near Vector arena this weekend…
